TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
I graduated from the program in 1995, and have been working as a technical
writer ever since. I'll admit there were a fair number of my colleagues who
didn't end up in the technical writing field after graduation, but I know of
at least one other who did initially (she then moved into PMP work).
I HIGHLY recommend the program. The director of the program until this year
started in my last year, and is absolutely top notch! (Hi, Lu!) She is still
currently teaching there, but is not currently the director of the program.
